QantasLink to refurbish two more 717 aircraft

    QantasLink announced (09-Aug-2017) it plans to reconfigure two more single class Boeing 717 jets, with a business cabin, upgraded interior and inflight entertainment for all seats. This brings the total number of reconfigured aircraft for the carrier up to 12 out of 20 in the fleet of 717 aircraft. From late 2017, one of these reconfigured 717s will be redeployed from Perth to operate on the Brisbane-Adelaide and Brisbane-Cairns routes. [more – original PR]
